Winter in Marrakesh
Excellent overall trip, distance was longer than expected, however our driver “Abdou” was very good and made the trip easier, our camel ride guide “Ismail” was fun . Both spoke good English.

2 Days 1 Night To Zagora Desert From Marrakech
Amazing two day one night trip from Marrakech to Zagora! Stopped off at some historical cities along the way which were beautiful! The camel ride at sunset was the best part! In the morning you climb the mountain to watch the sunset so make sure you take your cameras! Long days travelling but definitely worth it!

Amazing 2-day Zagora Tour from Marrakech, Unforgettable

2-Day Zagora Tour from Marrakech Including the Atlas Mountains, Camel Trek and Desert Camp
This was one of the most beautiful experiences I've ever had in my life. If I could go back and do it again, I would. Although the drive is pretty long, the stops along the way are so worth it, and the final destination at the Zagora Desert left my best friend and I breathless. The food was delicious and the camp was beautiful. Everyone at the camp made us feel so comfortable, & our guides were great. One of the best sunrises, sunsets, and stars i've ever seen. I 100% recommend this.

2-Day Zagora Tour from Marrakech Including the Atlas Mountains, Camel Trek and Desert Camp
Everything was great. We loved it! We read some of the other reviews before we went so we expected to be harassed by people trying to sell us things we don't need like sunglasses and scarves. But it was just the opposite. No pressure. We brought snacks so we wouldn't have to eat lunch at the "expensive" restaurant. That was fine. We sat at a nice table outside and ate our fruit and waited until everyone was finished their meals.

Desert Overnight Zagora Erg Chigaga Tour & Camel and 4x4 ( All-inclusive )
We were collected by Rachid, our guide, and Ibrahim,  our driver, at our accommodation in Zagora. We visited a pottery in Tamagrout on the way to the Erg Chigaga, which was interesting.  Ibrahim was a great driver and he took good care of us and had great taste in music. Rachid had good English and great knowledge of the culture and history of the desert and the country in general.  We had a short camel ride to the highest dune, that we climbed to look at the sunset, which was beautiful. Afterwards we had a very nice dinner followed by a campfire and time to enjoy the unforgettable stars. The facilities were very basic and the toilets were pretty grim, but otherwise we had a fantastic night. We got up to see the sunrise and after a good breakfast headed back by a different route through the desert. An overall great experience.

Enjoyed this tour, but the image...

Zagora & Kasbahs 2 Day Desert Tour from Marrakech
Enjoyed this tour, but the image used by Viator is pure marketing spin. Zagora desert dunes were about 2 metres high, not the huge dunes you see in the photo. But for all that, the Zagora desert camp was scenic and beautiful in it's own way. Be warned: this tour is a long drive with many hours spent in the minibus, but it was also an amazing trip over the Atlas and anti-Atlas Mountains, through Ouarzazate, the Draa Valley, and then a sunset camel trek to a desert camp among sand dunes. First stop was a coffee shop/restaurant in the steep mountain valleys of the Atlas mountains below Tizi-n-Tichka pass, and then a little later a stop near the top of the pass to enjoy the snow on the ground and take photos. It is an amazing scenic road over the Atlas mountains. Our guide in Ouarzazate took us through Taourirt Kasbah filling us in on some of the history and architecture. Saw none of the private rooms of this Kasbah, just walked through the maze of alleyways and the shops there in. Would have liked a more thorough tour given this Kasbah's history. The guide then steered us across the road to La Kasbah Etoile for lunch, rated 50 of 51 restaurants in Ouarzazate. Definitely below average, and there are 3 other restaurants in the vicinity. About the best aspect to this restaurant was the rooftop terrace views, forget the food. My advice: go somewhere else, it's your lunch money. After Ouarzazate we travelled over the anti-Atlas mountains then along the length of the Draa Valley to Zagora. We stopped briefly late in the afternoon at a small grocery shop to buy bottled water and snacks for our overnight adventure.The desert camel trek was about 1.8km, a real experience, and ours was timed just right, at sunset. The Desert Camp tents were great with wonderful Berber hospitality. But the night I visited there was a campfire after dinner, but no music, songs or stories. mmm. Maybe they were a bit tired. The starry desert skies were truly magnificient and the twilight of dusk and dawn among the low sand dunes was breathtaking. After sunrise another camel trek of about 1.8km back to your tour bus. Driving the Draa valley was spectacular with palmgroves along the river flanked by bare mountains on either side. There were quite a few people cycling, and donkeys were a means of transport and used for hauling dates from the Palm groves. It would have been nice to explore far more, although on this tour time was at a premium. In the morning of the second day of our journey back to Marrakech, we stopped at a cafe/restaurant next to Kasbah Oulad Othmane in the Draa Valley and enjoyed a coffee or fresh squeezed orange juice and bought snacks. We then drove to Ben Haddou, a fortified village and world heritage site well worthwhile visiting. Lunch was in a hotel organised by tour guide in the new town over the river from Ben Haddou, but was fairly ordinary. Might have been better to find our own lunch. Back in Ouarzazate we were taken to Labyrinthe du Sud and given the hard sell on carpets. My advice: do have a wander and look around this store full of antiquities, jewellery and carpets, but know the value of what you are bargaining for. Probably better to bargain in a Marrakech souk for what you want. Last stop was at an Argan Women's co-operative in which the process of extracting the oils from the Argan nut were explained to us, with an opportunity to buy Argan oil and cosmetics. Worthwhile visiting and supporting one of these co-operatives. We didn't get back to the Marrakech medina till well after 9pm. It was a long 2 days and different to my expectations, but I am glad I did this tour. Just watch out for the guide steering you to visit tourist traps for food and purchases when there are other options available.

Really nice tour and a must do if...

Overnight Desert Tour from Marrakech to Zagora
Really nice tour and a must do if you are staying in Marrakech. Our guide Jamal was very punctual, spoke good English and was very friendly. The camel ride was really fun and sleeping in a berber camp was a great experience but keep in mind that Zagora desert is not the same as the Sahara desert, you won't see any golden sand dunes, though there will be some sand too. The car was really comfortable too. Highly recommended. Note: you have to take your stuff with you during the camel ride the driver will not meet you at the camp, so it's better to have a backpack than a trolley I had a trolley so I had to leave my luggage on the car and just take my wallet and my camera with me to the camp
